It's your year. . .it's your time.

A couple of weeks ago we shared ten questions to help accelerate your 2016 TurnAround. 

Several days ago I was stirred to share the questions again.  Frankly, I questioned the Lord by pointing out. . .as if He didn't know. . .that I had already shared the questions.

He then directed me to provide my answers as a way of encouraging others to answer the questions as well.

I want to assure you this isn't some meaningless exercise.  When you answer the ten questions. . .you will feel energized about your new year.

Here are the ten questions.

If I had a penny for every time someone said to me: “You don’t know my circumstances,” I would be able to pay for my dream trip to Bora Bora.

When people say that to me my usual response is: “You know. . .you’re right. . and I don’t want to know your circumstances.

Dictionary.com defines circumstances as:

“a condition, detail, part, or attribute, with respect to time, place, manner, agent, etc., that accompanies, determines, or modifies a fact or event; a modifying or influencing factor”

Spiritually speaking. . .I define circumstance as the circle you’re standing in.

We shouldn’t be standing still. . .we should be moving from glory unto glory (2 Corinthians 3:18).

In which case, we would be leaving our circumstances behind.

So for me. . .the question is why do I want to hear about what this person ought to be leaving behind.

Are you willing and ready to be the change the world needs?

The real question is. . .are you willing to change regardless of what other people think or the consequences that will happen around you?

Exodus 2:14 in the New Living Translation says:

“The man replied, “Who appointed you to be our prince and judge? Are you going to kill me as you killed that Egyptian yesterday?”  Then Moses was afraid, thinking, “Everyone knows what I did.”

Moses wanted to change the plight of the children of Israel.  In a fit of moral outrage he slayed an Egyptian who was beating an Israelite.

As he began to fully realize the implications of his actions. . .he knew things were going to change.

There are times when we want change to come but we must also be willing to consider the consequences of our actions.

Despite spending years on the backside of the desert . . . running from and making excuses to God . . . Moses was used to led the children of Israel through the wilderness for forty years until he delivered them to the door of the Promised Land.

Exodus 3:17-20 in the New Living Translation says:

Never let your circumstances define your destiny.  Rather create the circumstances that will assure your destiny.
